The Best of 406 From 2016

2016 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since back in 2010. I started off the year strong with 22 posts between January and February! I slowed down quite a bit but ended the year with a respectable 79 posts for the year, down just one from last year’s output of 80 posts. I still plan on knocking out three more which will be dated in 2016 (three WWE PPV recaps). I’m sort of an analytics geek … Continue reading

The Best of 2015 – A Look Back At 406Northlane.com

2015 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Best Of” since back in 2010.  I really upped my blogging output this past year but that doesn’t mean I’m happy. There’s still a lot I want to say… just look at my drafts folder! I’m sort of an analytics geek so I really look forward to writing these recap posts. It’s always interesting (to me at least) to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts … Continue reading

The Naughty Elf On The Shelf

Naughty Elf On The Shelf

It’s December so the Elf on the Shelf is back! If you’re like me, pics of this little guy are floating across all of your social media timelines. If you’re not familiar with the Elf on the Shelf, it’s an ingenious little tool for parents around Christmas.  Your elf comes to visit you just after the Thanksgiving holiday (we do it the day after, I know others that wait till December 1st).  Each day the elf … Continue reading

2013 – A Retrospective Look Back At The Best Of 406

The Top 10 Of 2013

I started doing these “Best Of” recaps back in 2010.  I don’t blog nearly as often as I’d like to but I really do enjoy looking back at these year-in-review posts.  It’s always interesting to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts that prevail through the years. For 3 years running, my list of Top 80?s Action Movies has held the top spot on this list.  Will it hold onto … Continue reading

The Missing Elf On The Shelf

Missing Elf On The Shelf

The Elf On The Shelf is an ingenious little tool for parents around Christmas.  Apparently it’s been a thing for years but I’d been oblivious up until the last couple of years when “Charlie” came to our family to watch over G & C.  If you’re not familiar with the The Elf on the Shelf let me tell you a little about it. Your elf comes to visit you just after the Thanksgiving holiday (we do … Continue reading

Honestly? The Doggie Doo?

Doggie Doo Game

I ran across this little gem the other day and it compelled me to write.  Regardless of my social media banterings, I tend to be a little bit slow on the uptake on these sorts of “phenomenons”. I’d never heard of a Leap Pad until the wife told me I had to be at Target five mornings a week before 8:00 AM to get one. I’d never heard of The Elf On The Shelf until … Continue reading
